Winter has settled in with a vengeance here in the Midwest. Time to pull out all those accessories worked up in glorious, squishy, double-sided brioche stitches. I'm particularly loving my scarf adapted from the Brioche Nine-Patch Blanket pattern. As I was working the first strip of a scrappy version of the blanket, it dawned on me that the super soft baby alpaca I was using was just begging to be a scarf. So when I got to the end of the first strip of the blanket, I just added on the next block of the second strip. The resulting scarf is about 8 feet long and 10 inches wide. So warm and luxurious!
The stitches that are used in the pattern are:
2-color brioche rib
And here's the pattern worked up as a blanket - using Cascade 220 superwash.
